The Equine Foot: Moving the Needle to Best Care
James A. Orsini, Editor

This issue of Veterinary Clinics of North America: Equine Practice builds on the foundation started in earlier issues of Veterinary Clinics of North America: Equine Practice that were topical on laminitis. This issue is an expanded and thoroughly updated issue that provides our fellow colleagues with a comprehensive and thorough resource for the “common” and “less common” problems of the equine foot and not just focused on laminitis. The information is the most exhaustive of any of the previous publications on the equine foot, while offering a point-by-point discussion of best practices when caring for the foot. Our goal, as a group, was to provide the most current, in-depth information for effectively managing the important clinical foot problems in the horse along with creating the framework in anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, nutrition, endocrinology, foot mechanics, and imaging, as well as recommendations and treatment options. The format is like other Veterinary Clinics of North America: Equine Practice issues and includes many illustrations, protocols, procedures, and treatments, clearly differentiating it from earlier publications on laminitis..
